People are increasingly seeing the benefits of getting involved in horticulture and food growing, including community cohesion and sense of place, supporting biodiversity and improved physical and mental health.

As a keen gardener and allotmenteer, I have experience of a wide range of horticultural styles, and have provided technical input to many projects. I am also experienced in leading activities and training in many aspects of growing.


  • I have been involved in the development of various community orchards around Manchester
  • I designed and co-built our Little Green Roof demonstration for the Dig the City gardening festival in Manchester City Centre
  • I regularly took children from the neighbouring school on tours of our allotment site, using it as way to explore plant requirements and plant structures in a fun and engaging way.
